Rebelscum has posted the first look at the Target Exclusive (Tesco in the UK) 12″ Hero Series 6pk set for release on Force Friday. We originally posted details for this set in our DPCIs Decoded article last week. Head on over for a closer look.
Reader Johnathon F. writes in with news that he found Rey (Jedi Training) and Finn (Resistance Fighter) figures at a Target in California. Look for these two figures and more on shelves between now and the official release date on September 1.
As we speculated a couple weeks ago, there is a version of the BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset that includes the Force Link bracelet. We’ve seen the version without the bracelet leaked via Amazon.es but now you can see the second version in alternate packaging has leaked out and is on-shelf at Target via an Instagram post from ToyThugShow (swipe left on the Instagram image to see it.)
Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the heads-up.
Collectors concerned about old 6″ product clogging pegs at Target can breathe easy as we have news that a new DPCI has been issued for the 6″ Black Series assortment especially for the Force Friday launch of The Last Jedi products.
SW E8 Black Series 6″ Assortment: 087-06-1922
We have another decoded Target DPCI to share today and it was the last one on our original list (posted here). The others were revealed here yesterday. This item is a “Star Wars Galaxy” Multipack that includes one figure from each of the serialized episodes (I-VIII). There are probably some good ol’ evergreen characters that will probably be included in here like Vader and Luke, but who do you think they chose to represent The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi?
The DPCI is 087-06-8398, (which is now active on Brickseek) retail price is $39.99 and has an estimated October 1 release date.
Leave a comment on whom you’d like to see. And yes, they are all basic (5 POA) figures.
We have received additional details, confirmations and some new reveals for a list of Target DPCIs that we shared back on July 2 (you can see the original article here). Click on through for the new info.
Recently, our friends at Jeditemplearchives shared news of Target’s plan to merchandise clearance Star Wars items in their very own planogram section.
While traveling today, I came across a Target store that had just reset their clearance Star Wars items following these corporate guidelines (this store also had an endcap filled with at least 30 more 5poa figures from TFA and Rogue One and a ton of Ezra speederbikes).
What kind of clearance selection are you all seeing at your local Targets? How low do these products need to go for customers to put them in their carts? Share your thoughts after the jump!

Managed to pick up the Princess Leia and Wicket Endor Adventure set over my lunch break at my local Target (Medina, MN). They had these in stockroom as well as the Rey Extendable Staff (which I passed on). As a reminder, retail for the Endor Adventure set is $34.99 with DPCI 087-06-9292. I’ll get my girls to give their thoughts on this set later tonight.
(Sorry if this purchase triggers those (you know who you are) that can’t stand Hasbro marketing to kids or to parents looking to share their love of Star Wars with their progeny.)
Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.
We shall see…. we shall see.*
